A Wolf at the Door, edited by Ellen Datlow and Terri Winding

A Wolf at the Door and Other Retold Fairy Tales, edited by Ellen Datlow and Terri Windling, is a short story collection that I've had on my shelf for a while now, and I finally got around to reading it. It's much what I would expect from a Datlow/Windling compilation -- stories ranging from moderately good to very good, from familiar writers as well as lesser-known ones. The real gem of this collection is Neil Gaiman's poem, "Instructions," which was later published as a picture book. I enjoyed all of the other stories, but none of them stuck with me in the same way. This is a solid collection, recommended for those who love fairy tales.
